Are you completely new to functional web testing? Don’t know where to get started? If so, please mark off your calendar for a three day series of webinars June 26th, 27th, and 28th. I’ll be hosting these webinars from 11AM – 12PM Eastern US.

This series is targeted to individuals or teams just getting started with web automation—although more experienced folks may learn a few things too!

I’m still fleshing out the agenda and content, but here’s a few of the things you can look forward to learning about:

  • Automation’s purpose/fit in your overall quality and testing strategy
  • What a web page looks like under the covers, and how Test Studio interacts with it
  • What a page’s lifecycle is, and why you need to know about it
  • Understanding element locators, and why it’s so important to understand them well
  • Dealing with dynamic content like AJAX
  • Designing and implementing great test cases
  • Why you’ll need close collaboration with your entire team
  • Learning to build a backing framework
  • Keeping your tests reliable and lean
  • Learning why it’s important to not test everything—and learning the sorts of things to not test!
  • Data driving tests to flesh out coverage
  • Working with baseline data sets
  • Understanding teardown and setup actions
  • Working with source control
  • Surviving and keeping your sanity as your test suite grows in size

These webinars are intended to be “Lunch and Learn” sessions: informal but with a lot of information flowing. I’ll be leaving plenty of time for questions, too! Register today!
